Storthes Hall Green

Yorkshire Middle Distance Champions

Mon 29 Jan

Congratulations to AIRE Yorkshire Champions at Storthes Hall:

M21 Dave Murgatroyd, M35 Pauls Liepins, W35 Anne Maguire, W55 Gill Adams, W60 Shirley Wood, M70 Tony Thornley (list deduced from the results, apologies for errors or omissions - mail with any corrections).

Rather scrappy Green course (M65/70) shown. Nice orienteering, but some gratuitous climb - I did 200m against the description sheet 120m - and not really bad routes……...

Thankyou to Temple Newsam

Mon 8 Jan

Airienteers would like to thank all the staff at the Temple Newsam estate and in particular Steve Worrilow, Estate Manager, and David Bradley, Farm Manager, for their friendly help and assistance in staging our two events last weekend.

In particular we are grateful for the estate allowing us the use of indoor facilities for registration and download, which made the events much easier to run. We would also like to thank Leeds Parks and Countryside department for the use of the estate for orienteering.

We hope everyone who came to the events enjoyed them and enjoyed the good Yorkshire weather!

New Year's Day in Heaton & Northcliffe

Mon 1 Jan

Thanks go to Chris and Helen Burden who did an excellent job of organising the annual New Year's Day Event and Social, this year in Heaton & Northcliffe Park. There was a good turnout of all ages, many wearing festive hats, who enjoyed the slippery slopes and the opportunity to see in the New Year in good company. David Alcock won the chocs for visiting all of the controls in the 45 minutes, well done David!

A great day out.
Lots of children tried the maze and most also had a go in the Park.
